COPS IN SCHOOLS DILG chief cites EO70 to back police visibility in schools
epartment of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Eduardo Año on Friday said the department will review the memorandum of agreement with state universities and colleges regarding police visibility in in�iltrated schools and universities.
Año said in line with the government's “whole-of-nation-approach” in eliminating local armed con�lict as stated in Executive Order No. 70, which created the National Task Force to End the Local Communist Armed Con�lict (NTFELCAC), police presence
in schools and universities can be increased to deter the recruitment program of Leftist groups. "Tandaan natin na ang laban na ito ay hindi lamang sa red area o mga probinsiya kundi pati dito sa white area o mga lungsod - sa ating mga

enator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go said over the weekend that President Rodrigo Duterte is still studying the proposed exemption of this city from martial law in view of security concerns. “I cannot speak in behalf of the President, but he is concerned that the terrorists might run and hide here in Mindanao,” he said. Last Tuesday, Councilor Mabel Acosta, peace and public safety committee chairperson, �iled a resolution requesting President Duterte to exempt the city from the coverage of the island-wide martial law. Mayor Sara Duterte announced during the 5th Davao Investment Conference (ICon) in June her intention to ask for the lifting of martial law following her dialogue with ambassadors and of�icials of other countries who attended the event. Go, who visited �ire and monsoon wave victims here, said he supports the stand of
Mayor Sara, knowing that this city is a very peaceful place to live in. However, he said the decision whether to lift martial law here is still in the hands of the President based on the recommendation of the military, intelligence authorities, and the Department of National Defense. “As a Dabawenyo, I witness how peaceful the city is but I also understand the position of the national government on this issue,” the senator added. Go also explained that the military presence in Mindanao is meant to not only protect the island from terrorists but also to deter them from coming in. “The good thing is that, our military was not involved in any abuse and the Mindanaoans know that,” he stressed. President Duterte declared martial law in the entire Mindanao on May 23, 2017 amid the siege of Marawi City by Islamic State-inspired terrorists. (PNA)
resident Rodrigo Duterte urged the Filipino Muslims to embrace the value of submission to a higher authority as he joins the Islamic world in observing Eid’l Adha or the Feast of the Sacri�ice on Monday (August 12). In his message released by Malacañang on Sunday, Duterte described the complete willingness of Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) to offer the life of his beloved son in obedience to Allah’s divine command as “one of the most remarkable demonstrations of faith of all time”. “This account not only teaches us the importance of personal sacri�ice, but also inculcates in us the value of submission to a higher authority, even though, at times, our feelings and emotions compel us otherwise,” Duterte said. “Truly, this feast’s narrative continues to resonate in our present time,” he added. He also called on the Filipino people, including their
Muslim brothers and sisters, “to lend a piece of ourselves to endeavors that redound to the common good and bene�it the most number of people”. “Let us, therefore, re�lect on the lessons we can learn today to deepen our faith and strengthen our resolve to bring about a society that is worthy of Allah’s continued blessings and protection. May you have a meaningful observance! Eid Mubarak!” he added. Last week, the Palace declared August 12 (Monday) a holiday throughout the country as recommended by the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos to give the Muslims in the country “ample time” to celebrate Eid’l Adha. Eid’l Adha is one of the two greatest most important holidays on the Muslim calendar. The other is Eid’l Fitr or “feast of breaking the fast” which marks the end of the holy fasting month of Ramadan.

astern Mindanao Command (Eastmincom) commander Lt. General Felimon T. Santos Jr. urged the youth to honor their parents following the concerns and sentiments raised by the parents recently in the Senate who were reportedly disowned by their children recruited by various leftist partylist group.
“Honor your parents, be ambitious, be cautious and be the ambassadors of peace and development in your communities,” the commander, in his closing remarks during the Youth For Peace Movement’s Youth Leaders Summit-Eastern Mindanao in Mt. Moriah Camp, Pagatpat, Malaybalay, Bukidnon on Sunday, August 11. According to Eastmincom spokesperson Lt. Colonel Ezra Balagtey, the youth
responded by handing over their proposed program of activities which was an output of their workshop on how they will contribute to peace and development. “It covers four thematic programs which are: Organizational Development, Community Development, Peace Communication, and Youth Development,” he said. Balagtey said the 3-day youth activity which gathered of 117 youth leaders coming from Regions 10,
Dela Rosa admits accepting gifts when he was still a police oﬃcial
enator Ronald dela Rosa admitted Monday that he too accepted gifts from grateful benefactors as he defended President Rodrigo Duterte from criticisms over his remark that gifts are not bribe so police of�icers may take it. “Praktikal na tao lang si Presidente at ako ay praktikal din. Inaamin ko tumanggap din ako noon,” Dela Rosa said in an interview. The senator served as a police of�icial in Davao City when Duterte was a mayor there. He was named PNP chief when Duterte assumed the presidency in June 2016. He retired in 2018. In the radio interview, Dela Rosa said that at the time, he and his men were able to successfully rescue a kidnap victim so the family of the minor went to their station and brought food, including lechon. He said he accepted it. “Anong gagawin ko? Sabihin ko hindi po hindi namin kakain bawal po ‘yan. Napakaipokrito ko ’pag sinabi kong hindi ko tinanggap,” he said. Another instance, he said, was when they were able to
solve a robbery incident and arrest the suspects, the victim went to their of�ice and offered to replace their faulty of�ice printer. “Hindi ‘yan hinihingi ng pulis, kusang binibigay at tulong sa trabaho ng pulis bakit hindi namin tanggapin,” he said. Asked if he received a personal gift, Dela Rosa said someone gave him a high-end shirt and he accepted it. “Huwag tayong magkunwari, huwag tayong magbalatkayo na hindi tayo tumatanggap. Lacoste na t-shirt tinanggap ko. Nasa kultura natin ‘yan e,” he said. He also recalled that his riding and shooting friend once gave him a watch bought in the United States. “Pumunta siya sa Amerika, nakakita siya ng relo na bagay sa personality ko. Marvel, ‘yung may markang bungo binili ng kaibigan ko. Pag-uwi niya dito sabi bagay sa’yo ‘yan,” he said. ‘Inggitero’ The senator also called those who made an issue when he joined the team of Senator Manny Pacquiao during his

housands of of�icials and regular employees of the Davao City government will receive performance bonus of at least 50 percent of their monthly pay . This was revealed by Councilor Danilo C. Dayanghirang, chairman of the Davao City Council committee on �inance, appropriations and ways and means, as well as committee on games and amusement, during yesterday’s presentation of Kapehan sa Dabaw at the SM Annex-Ecoland. Dayanghirang said that 2,585 of�icials and regular employees of the Davao City government are quali�ied to receive the bonus based on their performance rating. The granting of the performance bonus is authorized by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) in a letter received last May 24, 2019 by
Mayor Sara Z. Duterte from DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Ano, the city councilor said. The performance bonus is part of the Supplemental Budget No. 1 covering more than P1.4 billion which will be proposed by Dayanghirang this week in the city council. Ano told Mayor Sara in the letter that “based on the Additional List of Eligible Local Government Units issued by the AO 25 Technical Working Group and Secretariat on April 11, 2019, as a result of the re-valuation by the Civil Service Commission, the City Government of Davao was found to have complied with all of the conditions and criteria for the grant of the FY 2017 Performance-Based for Local Government Of�icials and Employees pursuant to Section 3.0 of DILG-DBM Joint Memorandum Circular No. 2017 -4 dated June
last February. Investments from China comprised 28.3 percent, the highest, of the 179 billion pesos in total foreign investments approved last year. Singapore came in second with approved investment pledges worth PhP 21.181B: Japan pledged PhP 19.7 B; British Virgin Islands, PhP 16.2 B; Malaysia, P14.6 B; United States of America, P12.8 B; Taiwan, P4.2 B; United Kingdom, P3.8 B; France, P2.56 B; and Australia, P2.4B. These �igures were based on the pledges ap-
proved by the Board of Investments, Clark Development Corporation, Philippine Economic Zone Authority, Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority, Authority of the Freeport Area of Bataan, BOI-Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao, and Cagayan Economic Zone Authority. Tang added some of the Chinese-supported infrastructure projects in the Philippines have already started while the others are undergoing feasibility study. (Antonio L. Colina IV / MindaNews)
China to invest more in Mindanao
hina will pour more investments in Mindanao and import more crops from the country’s second largest island grouping as its relationship with the Philippines is “enjoying the best time in history,” Chinese Deputy Consul General Duokon Tang said. Tang reiterated China would help the Philippines develop by strengthening its support for infrastructure development and importing top agricultural crops from Mindanao to China. “This is a very, very rare, valuable and precious opportunity for us, we must
seek it,” he said. He vowed to introduce Mindanao as a possible investment destination to more Chinese businessmen. The Chinese government opened its consulate general in Davao City on October 28 last year. Vicente Lao, chair of the Mindanao Business Council
CebPac opens more slots for ‘study now, pay later’ cadet pilot program
udget carrier Cebu Paci�ic opened another 16 slots to prospective pilots under its "study now, pay later, zero-interest" program. In an emailed Sunday statement, Cebu Paci�ic said they started accepting applications on Thursday-August 8, and would continue to do so until next Sunday-August 18. The incoming batch of cadets would be the eighth batch of recruits who would undergo 52 weeks of integrated �light training, theory, and education at Flight Training Adelaide in Australia. They would also undergo an additional four weeks of training to obtain a pilot's license under the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP). Under the program, the airline would initially shoulder the costs and amortize the payment for the course. The program would be �inanced by the carrier,
and successful pilots who enter the airline would reimburse the cost of the program through salary deductions over a maximum of ten years. The application process begins with online pre-screening, followed by an on-site screening for core skills and pilot aptitude tests, among other examinations, for which a fee of $425.00 or about P19,000 would be charged. Quali�ied applicants had to have an average grade of at least 80 percent or its equivalent in subjects related to Math, Physics, and English. At present, the company has 74 cadet-pilots in its program, with the �irst batch expected to assume First Of�icer duties in the fourth quarter of 2019. In 2017, Cebu Paci�ic said they would be shelling out some $25 million during the next �ive years of the cadet pilot training program.
said in a text message on Sunday that the Philippine should take advantage of the desire of China to invest here to push the growth of the country. “We have never had it so good,” he said of the country’s stronger diplomatic ties with China under the Duterte administration. He said the country’s relationship with China would boost the domestic economy. “The gross regional domestic product is high, in�lation is low and the interest is very low. We should
advantage of the desire of China to invest in the Philippines so that we will be able to grow and become a middle-income country,” he said. President Rodrigo Duterte is set to leave for China later this month, his 5th visit since he was elected President in 2016. Approved Chinese investments in the country in 2018 reached 50.7 billion pesos compared to 2.3 billion pesos recorded in 2017, according to a data released by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA)

EDITORIAL Lowering crime rate Crime rate in the country is on the downtrend and with that, kudos must fall on the efforts of the law enforcement agencies particularly the Philippine National Police (PNP). As reported by PNP chief Gen Oscar Albayalde in his speech during the 118th Police Service Anniversary in Camp Crame on Friday, there is a marked decrease in crime incidents continuously for the past three years which re�lects a successful anti-illegal drugs campaign. The �igures based on Albayalde’s report showed that the PNP has conducted a total of 163,622 anti-illegal drugs operations resulting in the arrest of more than 256,000 drug personalities, the death of more than 6,000 in police operations, and the surrender of more than 1,200,000 under Oplan Tokhang. The �igures cover the period from July 1, 2016 to July 31, 2019. On the other hand, the operation against high-value targets resulted in the arrest of 3,133, the surrender of 3,705 and the death of 325 in police operations.

626,000 during the period covering July 2015 to June 2016, the total crime volume decreased by 58,276 or 9.30 percent during the �irst year of President Duterte’s term covering the period July 2016 to June 2017. This further decreased by 79,647 incidents or 14.02 percent on the second year covering the period July 2017 to June 2018, and further went down by 2.91 percent on the third year covering the period July 2018 to June 2019. Likewise, out of 42,045 barangays, more than 13,000 have been declared drug-free. But perhaps the most important footnote of the successful campaign against criminalities is the way the operations are done -- within the bounds of law and with utmost respect to human rights -- in stark contrast to the claims of the critics of the administration. Signi�icantly, the report is re�lected in the new survey that placed the Philippines as the 24th best place to live and work which is just one rung lower than the United States at no. 23, and ahead of China at no. 26.

JOHN DENVER TRENDING , CINEMALAYA AND CYBERBULLYING Free speech is one of the human rights and a guaranteed constitutional right in the Philippines, however, it can lead to abuse and border to harassment, bullying, cyber bullying, cyber abuse and negative online experience Cyber bullying can be disastrous, even fatal, as shown in the �ilm “John Denver Trending” as one of the entries in the 2019 Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival at the Cultural Center of the Philippines. Directed and written by Arden Rod Condez, this drama �ilm shot in Antique follows a 14-year-old farm boy who gets accused of stealing an iPad. He then ends up in a brawl with a classmate to shield himself, but his whole life changes when the incident gets caught on video and circulates online. Condez said in an interview that he purposely got non-professional actors to keep the idea of a nobody suddenly becoming infamous because of a viral video. He also said that shooting it in his hometown,
using the local language of Kinaray-a, gives emphasis on the the experience of the entire town; a sleepy unknown place that would also rise to infamy. The �ilm was shot entirely in Pandan, Antique, Condez’s home province. Only Meryll Soriano and Sunshine Teodoro are professional actors. The rest of the cast members led by neophyte child actor Jansen Magpusao are either Condez’s relatives or childhood friends. Magpusao’s family lives in a mountain resort in Pandan, Antique called Malumpati Cold Spring. The �ilm perhaps embodied Cinemalaya’s real vision : “the creation of new cinematic works by Filipino �ilmmakers – works that boldly articulate and freely interpret the Filipino experience with fresh insight and artistic integrity. It also aims to invigorate the Philippine �ilmmaking by developing a new breed of Filipino �ilmmakers.” The gala screening last Tuesday at the CCP was Magpusao’s �irst time to watch a movie. There’s no cinema in Pan-
dan town. One has to travel six hours to Iloilo, just to see one. The proliferation of incidents similar to John Denver’s case is essentially addressed by the “Anti-Bullying Act of 2013” or R.A. 10627, that �inds applicability in school-related bullying, student-student bullying in particular, which covers those uttered in social media. “Bullying”, as de�ined, refers to any severe or repeated use by one or more students of a written, verbal or electronic expression, or a physical act or gesture, or any combination thereof, directed at another student that has the effect of actually causing or placing the latter in reasonable fear of physical or emotional harm or damage to his property; creating a hostile environment at school; infringing on the rights of another; or materially or substantially disrupting the education process. (Sec. 2, RA 10627) Speci�ically, “Cyber- bullying” is any bullying done through the use of technology or any electronic means. The term shall also include any con-
duct resulting to harassment, intimidation, or humiliation, through the use of other forms of technology, such as, but not limited to texting, email, instant messaging, chatting, internet, social media, online games, or other platforms or formats. The law requires the school principal or any authorized representative to report to the law enforcement agencies if he believes the bullying is tantamount to a crime and, thus, criminal charges may be pursued under the Revised Penal Code. One who publicly or maliciously imputes to another a crime, vice, defect, real or imaginary, or any act, omission, condition, status or circumstance tending to cause the dishonor, discredit or contempt of a natural or juridical person, or blacken the memory of one who is dead may be liable for libel (Art. 353, Revised Penal Code) These acts are more severely punished when done online in addition to the civil action for damages which may be brought by the offended party. (Sec. 4(c-
4), RA 10175). Cyberlibel holds liable only the original author of the post (Sec. 5(3), Implementing Rules of RA 10175). Likers or sharers of a post cannot be held liable under this law For non-compliance of RA 10627, the Secretary of the Department of Education shall prescribe the appropriate administrative sanctions on school administrators. Erring private schools shall likewise suffer the penalty of suspension of their permits to operate. Cordez said in the interview that a responsible social media user must never post anything when one’s emotions are high. Most of the time, posting online is triggered by the intensity of feelings, whatever emotion it is. Understand the repercussions before posting something on the internet. *** Atty. Dennis R.

HENRYLITO D. TACIO THINK ON THESE!
THAT “SHORT-LIVED MADNESS” “Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.” – Mark Twain *** It’s not easy to lose your temper if and when you are angry. And it is always after storm that you see how bad the devastation really is. When I left for Davao last month, I told one of my sisters to send me a message if ever she would receive a letter addressed to me. I was expecting to get a letter of invitation from one of my sponsors to attend an international conference. I told her three times and each time she answered af�irmatively. While in Davao, I was waiting a message from her. But there was none. Three days later, when I returned home, I saw the letter in my desk. I opened it and was dismayed to know that I had to submit the form a day earlier. I talked with my sister and she told me she forgot to tell me that the letter arrived that day when I left for Davao. Had she called me or sent me a message; I would have submitted the form on time. Her “I’m sorry” did not appease my anger towards her. (I wasn’t able to attend the conference, if you want to know.) For two days, that I was
what I felt. Then, I was reminded of the statement of American �iction writer Louis L’Armour: “Anger is a killing thing: it kills the man who angers, for each rage leaves him less than he had been before - it takes something from him.” Roman lyric poet Horace likens anger to “shortlived madness.” Elizabeth Kenny, the famed Australian nurse and originator of the Kenny method of polio treatment, was once asked by a close friend on how she managed to stay so constantly cheerful. “I suppose you were just born calm and smiling,” the friend said. “Oh, no,” the nurse laughed. “As a girl, my temper often got out of bounds. But one day, when I became angry at a friend over some trivial matter, my mother gave me the counsel that I have since stored in my mind, and have called upon for guidance ever since. She said, ‘Elizabeth, anyone who angers you, conquers you.’” The words of Mitch Albom come to mind: “Learn this from me. Holding anger is a poison. It east you from inside. We think that hating is a weapon that attacks the person who harmed us. But hatred is a curved blade. And the harm we do, we do to ourselves.”
There are several ways of conquering anger without really trying. Abraham Lincoln’s secretary of war, Edwin Stanton, had some trouble with a major general who accused him in abusive language of favoritism. Stanton complained to Lincoln, who suggested that he write the of�icer a sharp letter. Stanton did so, and showed the strongly-worded memorandum to the president, who praised its powerful language. “What are you doing to do with it?” the American president asked. Surprised at the question, Stanton replied, “Why, send it, of course.” Lincoln’s answer even surprised Stanton more: “No, you don’t want to send that letter. Put it in the stove. That’s what I do when I have written a letter while I am angry. It’s a good letter and you had a good time writing it, and now you feel better. Now, burn it and write another.” The words of American writer and philosopher Elbert Hubbard came to my mind, too: “When a man sends you an impudent letter, sit right down and give it back to him with interest ten times compounded, and then throw both letters in the wastebasket.” If you are angry, count not just one to ten, but may a hun-
dred times. If you do that, the anger will subside and you may save yourself – and that of the person who will receive your wrath – from more harms. “I lose my temper, but it’s all over in a minute,” a student told George Sweeting. “So is the hydrogen bomb,” the president of the Moody Bible Institute of Chicago replied. “But think of the damage it produces.” Greek philosopher Socrates told a story that when he was still a boy, he chanced upon a man who was trying to unlock a door. The key would not work. The fellow bit the key and kicked the door. It opened. Then and there, the youthful thinker made up his mind never to give way to anger. And it worked – years later. One day, his very critical complaining wife Xanthippe, tongue lashed him for some trivial matter. And as he was walking away from her, she threw a pail of water at him. Instead of getting angry at her, he dismissed philosophically, “Well, after thunder, we usually do get a shower, don’t we?” James Seals, author of Anger, has this to say: “When we talk about anger management, we are talking about how you control your emotional and physiological responses to sit-
uations that cause anger. You cannot avoid these situations and you cannot avoid becoming angry at times; that is only natural. However, you can learn to control how you react.” But how? Marge Power, the woman behind Anger: What’s Up With That?, shares this tip: “When you feel anger beginning to build up inside of you, let your whole body droop and relax to the best of your ability while beginning to breathe slowly from the diaphragm. Breathing in this way helps to calm both the body and the mind which leads to letting go of anger before it takes a hold.” Dianne Kane, of Anger Management distinction, offers this idea: “The next time you feel anger rising in you, create a distance with yourself. Dissolve the ‘I’ that has got offended and you will see that all the signs of anger will disappear.” Conquer your anger but if you can’t here’s a reminder from the Bible. The Holy Bible states, “In your anger, do not sin,” it says. “Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry” (Ephesians 4:26). Proverb 16:32 reiterated, “He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that controls his temper is better than someone who takes a city.”

DILG vows to help ﬁnd minors ‘recruited’ by leftist groups
he Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) assured the parents whose children were recruited by leftist organizations that government will help recover their children following the outcry of mothers of minors recruited by Communist organizations during a Senate hearing. DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Año made this promise as he warned parents against the active recruitment of leftist organizations in schools and universities nationwide. He said parents must be vigilant and “involved
in guarding their children since these Communist-Terrorist Groups (CTGs) have little to no regard for the lives of the youth.” Año also said the organizations are masquerading as “progressive propoor organizations” when in fact they are front organizations or recruitment centers of the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army. “These organizations are brainwashing the children and destroying the youth of our country,” he said.

Año said there are 500 to 1,000 youth being indoctrinated by the CPPNPA every year who either become a member of the NPA or return to their re-
spective schools as militant student leaders. “They are using their alleged nationalism to teach children to kill and take up arms against the government,” he said. "Ang nangyayari kasi ngayon (What is happening now), so many schools are deeply in�iltrated by the CPP-NPA through their front organizations. Ngayon itong mga rebeldeng ito ay may mga corresponding member organizations sa mga eskwelahan kaya ito ang dapat nating bantayan (These rebels have corresponding member organizations in the schools and
we have to monitor them)" he said. He said it is unfortunate that Republic Act 1700 or the Anti-Subversion Act was repealed saying these leftist groups should be banned for being subversive and illegal.

He also urged local government units (LGUs) to exercise good governance to regain people's trust in government. “Good governance is our weapon against CTGs. Ang mga isyu na malapit sa bituka ang target samantalahin ng mga CTG na ito sa kanilang recruitment (These CTGs are using basic issues in their recruitment). I prod LGUs to put emphasis on programs that will address these issues as this can save our country from the havoc of these communist-terrorists," he said. "Prioritize programs that will tackle deeply-rooted issues such as provision of adequate social services including education, and an improved quality of life for all, among others," he added. Partnership with schools
Año said the DILG is keen in revisiting and reviewing the memorandum of agreement with State Universities and Colleges regarding police visibility in in�iltrated schools and universities. He said in line with the government's “wholeof-nation-approach” in eliminating local armed con�licts as stated in Executive Order 70, police presence in in�iltrated schools and universities can be increased to deter the recruitment program of leftist groups. "Tandaan natin na ang laban na ito ay hindi lamang sa red area o mga probinsiya kundi pati dito sa white area o mga lungsod — sa ating mga eskwelahan, factories at iba pa -- ito ang kanilang target samantalahin (Let us remember that war is not only in the provinces

"Hindi natin sinasabi na masama ang mga student organizations (we are not saying that these student organizations are bad), but many of them have been in�iltrated already by the CPP," he said. (PR)

Kathryn Fanlo’s signature brand of polymer clay accessories. A closer look into E.C. Dumlao’s works of art.
WATERFRONT DAVAO LAUNCHES 34TH KADAYAWAN FETE
WATERFRONT Insular Hotel celebrates the 34th Kadayawan Festival with a tribal fusion of local cuisine and an appreciation of the local arts. On August 8, 2019, the Hotel officially launched its Visual and Wearable Art Exhibition curated by visual artist Elenita Dumlao, accessory designer Kathryn Fanlo and florist Jade Polizon.
“Kadayawan, above anything else, is an expression of our locality”, said Hotel Manager Bryan Yves Lasala who further detailed that the exhibition was about the lives of our people – their outpouring of joy, the narratives they believe in and the value they put in their work. Each of the installation’s featured artists had their own stories to tell about their art forms. Elenita Dumlao is a homegrown, self-taught artist with a multitude of awards to her name. She was the only Asian who qualified for the 10th International Women’s Exhibit in Serbia, 2013 winning 1st Place for New Media Art Category. She has earned the City Mayor and Vice Mayor Awards for exemplary contributions to the Arts and has successfully held nine solo exhibitions in
the city. The abundance of color, beauty and joy in the festival season are the same elements that depict the imageries and composition of most of her art work. Neither fully abstract nor purely figurative, she balances these two qualities of expression in her techniques to come up with paintings that “uplift and inspire” the soul. Kathryn Fanlo is an aspiring accessory designer-entrepreneur whose passion for her craft has led her to direct her own art narrative. Using polymer clay to create wearable art pieces and working with indigenous communities, she has proven that art is both wearable and sustainable. Her brand currently partners with the Mandaya tribe of the Davao del Norte Highlands to produce fabrics to match her creations. The community program not only provides for their livelihood but motivates the young local weavers to enliven what could have been “a dying art”. Jade Polizon is a curator-business proprietor who has built a name for himself and for the Cameo brand, being among Davao’s best florists and event designers. He has worked in countries in the Arab and Europe but has always found himself coming back home.
Not one to rest on his laurels, he envisions to up the ante in floristry in Davao and Mindanao as this part of the industry is clearly underrated. For his Kadayawan installation titled “Tahamaling Ug Mahomanay”, he presents homage to the ‘Diwata’ of Philippine Flowers. The ceremonial launch was led by the following guests of honor: Hon. Pilar Braga, 1st District City Councilor; Hon. Myrna DalodoOrtiz, City Councilor for SP Tourism; Dr. Luz Acosta-Barrientos, Davao Medical Society President; and Ms. Karen Joy Dowing of the Bagobo Klata tribe, Hiyas sa Kalambuan 2018 who represented Ms. Generose Tecson of the City Tourism. They were joined by the artists; Waterfront’s Bryan Lasala and Jennifer Romero. Other guests in attendance were Former Vice Mayor Bernie Al-ag and family and members of the Rotary Club of Downtown Davao. After the viewing, guests were hosted to a dinner prepared by Chef Niño Ante and his team. The buffet previewed a Kadayawan Corner inspired by Davao’s eleven tribes. Waterfront Insular Hotel Davao shares the exhibition with a bountiful tribute to the King of Festivals at Café Uno beginning August 9 until August 31, 2019.

RITA DANIELA AND KEN CHAN HEADLINE BACK-TO-BACK DIGITAL SHORT FILMS THE road to forever continues as Barangay LS 97.1 unveiled another ‘kilig’ offering through a series of digital short films starring two of the most versatile and sought-after Kapuso stars – Rita Daniela and Ken Chan. Dubbed as #RitKenOnLSForever, the dynamic duo took social media by storm with the music video of Barangay LS’ official theme song “Tayo ay Forever,” which was posted on GMA Network’s Facebook page, with more than one million views to this date. Following the release of “Tayo ay Forever,” netizens were also treated to the online premiere of “The Start of Forever” last Monday, August 5. The story was directed by Vincent Gealogo, GMA Network Post Production Assistant Vice President for Operations and Concurrent Head of Digital Cinematography and Standards Section. It recorded more than one million views in less than a week. The short film featured the sweet story of Carla (Rita), a wedding planner, and Mark (Ken), a wedding photographer. The two meet while organizing a wedding when suddenly Mark finds himself
falling for Carla, but is unable to show his true feelings. Ken shared that it has always been his dream to star in a digital project and now that’s granted, he couldn’t be any more thankful to have Rita as his co-star, “Isa sa mga wish ko na magkaroon ng digital short film, kaya excited ako lalo na kaming dalawa ni Rita ang magkasama, at gagawa kami ng istorya kung saan makaka-relate at makaka-connect ang lahat.”
“I’m actually excited kasi it’s my first time to try something like this and gusto rin naming i-share ito sa lahat ng tao, lalo na sa millennials,” Rita added. Viewers couldn’t get enough of Rita and Ken’s tandem. Majority of the comments laud their chemistry and expressed excitement on another ‘kilig’ story that’s in store for them in the second short film, which will be about waiting and the right timing for love.
ANA RAMSEY OFFICIALLY LAUNCHES SOOTHING NEW TRACK Ana Ramsey reaches new heights as she bares the struggles of a conflicted heart in the official launch of her new song and music video titled “Tahan” under Star POP. The new Kapamilya singer shared that she got goosebumps when she first listened to “Tahan.” “Three songs were initially presented to me but when I listened to this song, I got chills. I was able to immediately recall the chorus, and I really found it beautiful,” she said. The 24-year-old DJ, who also has a handful of talents under her belt— such as singing, songwriting and hosting—isn’t new to the music scene.
cluding having the right attitude as a salesperson. “Success happens when preparation meets opportunity,” she said and thanked the tourism department, HRSMA and Asia World Hospitality for this development in her sales career.
In 2010, Ana joined “Star Power: Sharon’s Search for the Next Female Pop Superstar,” while in 2014, she proved to be an unstoppable force by winning the gold medal at the 2014 EuroPop Festival in Germany. Unbeknownst to many, the new Star Pop artist is also the granddaughter of the late Queen of Rock and Roll Elizabeth Ramsey and the niece of the Queen of Soul Jaya. And just like them, she has also been gifted with a distinct sound and an oozing appeal that certainly deserves a larger audience. However, although pressure certainly comes
with being related to successful performers, Ana doesn’t mind. “There’s pressure because they’ve made a mark in the industry and they’ve done amazing things, but I want to follow their footsteps when it comes
to singing and inspiring people through music.” Watch the official music video of “Tahan” on MYX and on Star Music’s YouTube channel. Also stream it on Spotify, Apple Music and other digital stores worldwide.

SUBURBIA RISING AFP bestows honor to Mayor Rellon
The Civil Relations Service, Armed Forces of the Philippines spearheaded by MGEN Bienvenido R Datuin Jr., AFP conferred two awards (Military Merit Medal (MMM) and Civil Military Operation Badge) to LTCOL Allan L. Rellon, who is the mayor of Tagum and also the Acting Brigade Commander of 2201st Ready Reserve Brigade and Acting Battalion Com-

‘Dangpanan..’brings services closer to Sto. Tomas residents
TO. TOMAS, Davao del Norte —Residents of this agricultural town can now easily avail themselves of the basic social and legal programs and services of the local government unit of Sto. Tomas as it opened to the public a working of�ice of Sto. Tomas Mayor “Tatay” Ernesto Evangelista that seeks to improve the delivery of these services for every Tomasian.
Aptly called as “Dangpanan ni Tomas,” the unique facility is located inside the municipal compound where residents can seek assistance of their various needs and concerns. DnT has served 383 clients coming from different barangays since it was opened last July 1. Among the services provided were burial assistance, �inancial assistance, medical assistance, rice subsidy, free legal consultation, sports equipments, and hospital referral to the Davao Regional Hospital in Tagum City.
Mayor “Tatay” Evangelista said “Dangpanan ni Tomas” aims to bring the social programs and services closer to his constituents. “The idea really is to bring the LGU’s social services and programs closer to the people. Under my term, I want every Tomasian to avail himself of the services since our local government unit them their needs especially those coming from geographically-isolated areas,” Evangelista said. Evangelista said the concept of DnT is anchored on his administration’s political
mantra “Akyson ang Solusyon” (Action is the Solution). “DnT seeks to address the concerns of the common people. If they have problems with burial, medical related-issues, legal, and other concerns that need to be addressed immediately,” he stressed. The local chief executive further explained that DnT would serve as a “sounding board” where every Tomasians could directly voice out their comments, suggestions and aspirations to the Of�ice of the Mayor. “They can communicate whatever, whenever, they want. I take the people’s comment seriously because it would help me lay the foundation on policy formation and decision- making toward achieving my pro-people political agenda,” Evangelista said. Carlo Jack Pino, executive assistant II, and in-charge of the DnT program, said that the establishment of DnT would
�ight in Las Vegas as ‘inggitero.’ “Mga inggitero lang ‘yung mga tao na ‘yan. Naiinggit lang ‘yun,” he said. Dela Rosa, however, does not see the need to amend laws such as Republic Act 6713 or the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Of�icials and Employees and Republic Act 3019 or the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act. “I don’t feel the need. Kaliit na bagay n’yan para pagtuunan ng pansin. Maliit na bagay ang regalo, it is happening anywhere, everywhere. Nasa kultura natin ‘yan e,” he said. But he said the police should be wary of the possible con�lict of interest that may arise. “Very clear sa akin ‘yung batas sa Anti-Graft na bawal tumanggap ng regalo dahil ang
spirit ng batas is para hindi magkaroon gng con�lict of interest, hindi magamit ang pwesto sa pangungurakot. Later on babalikan ka nyan at hingan pa ng pabor baka hindi ka na makahindi,” he said. “Pero ‘yung natulungan mo, pinapakain ka bakit mo masamain. Nasa kultura natin ‘yan. Hindi ako ipokrito,” he added. He further said receiving gifts from person known to be connected with illegal activities is another matter. “Kung nakita mo bigyan ka ng relo, ang nagbigay �inancier ng illegal gambling o kaya well known character na involved sa droga e bakit mo tatanggapin ‘yan. Delikado. Matatali ka, magkakaroon ng con�lcit sa interest. Tumanggap ka alam mo galing sa ilegalista, ibang usapan yun,” he said.
‘Insatiable greed’ Senator Pan�ilo Lacson, also a former PNP chief, said receiving gifts may start off “insatiable greed” among cops. “Mr. President, insatiable greed starts with simple, petty graft. It could be more addicting than drugs. There is no detox, nor is there rehab facility available for addiction to money,” Lacson said in a Twitter post Saturday. She added Memorandum Circular (MC) No. 2016-002 of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) that prohibits cops from receiving gifts. Under Section 1 Item 3 of the MC, it is considered as grave misconduct when cops receive a fee, gift, or other valuable things in the course of of�icial duties or in connection
therewith when such fee, gift or thing is given with the hope or expectation of receiving a favor or better treatment, Lizada said. Video karera Dela Rosa, meanwhile, frowned on police involvement in video karera operations. He said the President was just joking when he mentioned it. “Ilegal ‘yan. ‘Yung sinabi ni Presidente ginawa para pampatawa, laughing stock ang pulis kasi he grew up with the police. Alam niya ang kalokohan ng mga pulis kaya ginagawa niyang joke palagi ang pulis,” he said. “‘Yang karera sa inyong AOR, inyo naman ‘yan, wala akong pakialam. Sige ibigay mo sa pulis. Hindi mo rin talaga mapigilan. Alam mo ‘yang pulis, even sa pamilya nila hirap ‘yan,” he said.

ensure that government services are more accessible to the people. “We view DnT as a social arm of the Executive’s branch through the leadership of Mayor ‘Tatay’ Erning Evangelista. The program is expected to enhance the delivery of basic services guaranteeing higher number of bene�iciaries from different barangays,” Pino said. Sto. Tomas town is a 1st Class Municipality with a total population of 118, 750 based on the 2015 National Statistics Of�ice data. It has 19 barangays with Barangay Tibal-og as the most densely populated barangay. Since DnT was opened to the public, it was able to cater the immediate needs of every Tomasians with barangay leaders at the frontline of giving services to each constituent while minimizing the cost that people may incur as they go along the process to avail the services.
AGUM CITY – Two military awards have been conferred to Tagum City Mayor Allan Rellon in a ceremony held last August 1, 2019 at Camp General Emilio Aguinaldo in Quezon City. The Military Merit Award (MMM) and the Civil Military Operation Badge were presented to the local chief executive by no less than MGEN Bienvenido R. Datuin, Jr., AFP, the commander of Civil Relations Service of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (CRSAFP). The awards were given to Rellon to recognize his meritorious and valuable contribution in support to the overall accomplishments of the mission of the Civil Relations Services (CRS) as well as his possession of virtues that are inherent in every CRS warrior: relevant, objective, adept, responsive, committed and service-oriented.
Mayor Rellon, who has the rank of lieutenant colonel, is the Acting Brigade Commander of the 2201st Ready Reserve Brigade as well as the Acting Battalion Commander of the 1102nd Davao del Norte Ready Reserve Battalion under the AFP’s Philippine Army. It can be recalled that the local chief executive had previously been conferred with the Command Plaque as Best Reservists Of�icer of the Year in 2017 by the Philippine’s Commander-in- Chief. No less than President Rodrigo Duterte personally awarded the said recognition to Mayor Rellon during the 120th Philippine Army Anniversary. These awards, according to AFP, are both testaments of the mayor’s excellent leadership and courage not only shown to Tagumenyos but to all reservists under his command. Ziyarah Manalo/CIO Tagum
pines-New People's Army-National Democratic Front." "Hindi natin sinasabi na masama ang mga student organizations, but many of them have been in�iltrated already by the CPP (We're not saying that student organizations are bad, but many of them have been in�iltrated by the CPP)," he added. According to Año, there are 500 to 1000 youths being indoctrinated by the CPP-NPA every year and who either become members of the NPA or return to their respective schools as militant student leaders. “They are using their alleged nationalism to teach children to kill and take up arms against the government,” he said. "Ang nangyayari kasi ngayon (What happens now is that) so many schools are deeply in�iltrated by the CPPNPA through their front organizations. Ngayon, itong mga rebeldeng ito ay may mga corresponding member organizations sa mga eskwelahan kaya ito yun dapat nating bantayan (Now these rebels have corresponding member organizations in schools that we should be vigilant)," he says. He also said it is unfortunate that Republic Act 1700 or the Anti-Subversion Act was repealed, adding that these leftist groups should be banned for being subversive and illegal. In the meantime, he said, the PNP has already initiated the �iling of cases against the front organizations identi�ied through a recent Senate hearing and in the government's own intelligence and investigations. 'White areas' He also said that youth recruitment by leftist groups is only a fraction of the communist terrorist groups' (CTGs) elaborate campaign to overthrow the democratic government of the Philippines through armed struggle. He explained that such activities are prevalent in “white areas” or urban centers, where they actively recruit new members and extort revolutionary taxes from legitimate businessmen to fund their armed rebellion in the “red areas”, where they kill police of�icers and soldiers, government representatives, and anyone who opposes them. "It's part of their DNA to do these recruitments and unfortunately, they are able to brainwash our youth. Kaya naman let us work together so that no
Filipino will again be persuaded to abandon their families," he said. He also urged local government units (LGUs) to exercise good governance to regain the people's trust in government. "Good governance is our weapon against CTGs. Ang mga isyu na malapit sa bituka ang target samantalahin ng mga CTG na ito sa kanilang recruitment (The CTGs choose issues close to their targets during their recruitment). I prod LGUs to put emphasis on programs that will address these issues as this can save our country from the havoc of these communist-terrorists," he stressed. "Prioritize programs that will tackle deeply-rooted issues such as provision of adequate social services including education, and improved quality of life for all, among others," he noted. The DILG Chief also assured the parents, whose children were recruited by leftist organizations, that they will help recover their children. Año warned parents of the active recruitment by leftist organizations in schools and universities nationwide and said that parents must be vigilant and “involved in guarding their children since these Communist-Terrorist Groups (CTGs) have little to no regard for the lives of the youth.” He said these organizations are masquerading as “progressive pro-poor organizations” when in fact they are front organizations or recruitment centers of the CPP-NPA. “These organizations are brainwashing the children and destroying the youth of our country,” he said.

USA tweaks line-up after ﬁrst scrimmage
AS VEGAS -- The �irst week of U.S. Senior Men's National Team training for the FIBA World Cup concluded on Friday (Saturday, PHL time) with a scrimmage against the Select Team and a little bit of roster reshuf�ling. After the Senior Team beat the Select Team, 97-78, in the scrimmage, two players on the Senior Team were replaced by two players from the Select Team for the next phase of training camp -- three practices and an exhibition game against Spain in Los Angeles. Sent home from the Senior Team were center Bam Adebayo and forward Thaddeus Young. The 22-year-old Adebayo was one of the best rebounders in camp, but was probably a little too raw in comparison to the other bigs. Young, meanwhile, didn't provide the shooting that the remaining power forwards on the roster do. Added to the roster in their place are Marvin Bagley III and Derrick White, who impressed as members of Jeff Van Gundy's Select Team. They will join the 13 other healthy players from the Senior Team, along with Kyle Lowry (who is recovering from thumb surgery and missed all of this week's camp) and Marcus Smart (who missed the last three days with a sore left calf). From those 17 players, a 12-man roster will be selected for the World Cup. That roster doesn't need to be �inalized until two days before the tournament begins on Aug. 31, a fact that USA Basketball managing director Jerry Colangelo has brought up multiple times this week. So he and the rest of the staff clearly won't rush a �inal decision and it's possible that
the team will take more than 12 players with it from Los Angeles to Australia, where it will play three more exhibition games before heading to China. "We're going to be patient with the rest of the squad, because we have plenty of time," Colangelo said Friday (Saturday, PHL time). "We want to make sure everyone gets a real shot, and I think the staff is sorting through all that. There's something we like about every one of the players." Both Lowry and Smart are likely to make the �inal roster if they're healthy, but the status of both is still very much in the air. Lowry is expected to be reevaluated by his doctor before the start of the L.A. camp, and Smart will see how he feels after a few days off. Other sure things to make the �inal roster are Jayson Tatum (Friday's leading scorer) and four of the �ive starters from the scrimmage: Kemba Walker, Donovan Mitchell, Jaylen Brown and Khris Middleton, though Senior Team head coach Gregg Popovich said afterward that inferring too much into the starting lineup would be "an incorrect assumption." "We're still trying to �igure out how people �it together," he continued. "You don't always necessarily play your most talented guys together. It's got to be a good mix. You got to have something coming off the bench also. What we're doing now is just mixing and matching and taking a look at everybody."

Gilas gets win over Ivory Coast
ilas Pilipinas wraps up their Spanish trip stint on a high note in Malaga. The Philippines repeated over Ivory Coast early Sunday morning, scoring a 73-63 win in the Torneo de Malaga.
A day after struggling in a loss against Congo, Gilas rebounded with a victory against a World Cup team, �inishing its Spain training camp with a 3-1 record in total games played. Robert Bolick continued his impressive camp
and led Gilas in scoring with 18 points. Meanwhile, Andray Blatche had a solid bounce back effort, �inishing with 18 points, 18 rebounds, four assists, and three steals in the win. Despite missing out on
the chance to play Spain, Gilas’ training camp should still be considered a success considering they only played with eight players during all four games. The national team is back in Manila by August 13.
